The power that you have in life has been given to you by God, not to benefit your own ego, but to do good to others in the name of the Lord.

What's in a dream?
All men dream, but not in the same ways.
Some men dream in the night, only to wake in the daylight and forget their dream.
But those who dream in the daytime are dangerous men,
for they may act out their dreams with their eyes open,
and cause the impossible to become possible.

-Adapted from T. E. Lawrence

My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit.
He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there.

Indira Gandhi, Bits and Pieces, April 1990, p. 11.

"In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.”

This is the true joy in life,
the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one;
the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap ...
and being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievance,
complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

George Bernard Shaw
